Sens Making A List

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

John Muckler expects to see plenty of buying and selling before Thursday's NHL trade deadline and the Ottawa Senators are up for some wheeling and dealing. ''We're looking for a forward, we'd like to get maybe a depth defenceman,'' he said, adding that with No. 1 goaltender Dominik Hasek recovering from a muscle strain in his groin area, the Senators may also pursue some insurance between the pipes. ''We've looked at it, we know who's available. We just haven't made a decision.''

Yotes & Islanders May Be Moving Players

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

The trading-deadline guessing games are in full swing nowadays, with less than a week to go before the Mar. 19 deadline and two of the teams most worth watching are the Phoenix Coyotes and New York Islanders, both of which had just about played themselves out of playoff contention until they won big games Thursday night. The other quality the two organizations share is that philosophically, neither is opposed to making multiple player moves.

Non-Stop Shootout Action

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Hockey News Charile Teljeur discusses the stick measurement during the shootout.

This is where it starts to get tricky. In essence they want the referees one step ahead in the shootout. They don't want a delay in the spectacle, nor do they want officials chasing unmeasured players to the net. By alternating like this, fans at one end of the building will see the dramatic one-on-one while fans at the other will be treated to a man in a striped shirt brandishing a protractor (Go Obtuse Angle!).

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Detroit fans may be interested in reading about Cheli's new bar right next to Comerica Park. from the Detroit Free Press,

No one could accuse Chris Chelios of taking it easy. Fresh off a stint captaining the U.S. Olympic hockey team and still slogging away for the Red Wings as the oldest player in the NHL, the 44-year-old just unveiled his second area Cheli's Chili Bar. This one's in downtown Detroit, in a fabulously rehabbed space that's barely a slap shot away from Comerica Park.

New Rules Increase Chance Of Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke believes that strict enforcement of obstruction rules in the NHL this season has increased the chance of players' getting injured. "I think it's led to more injuries," Clarke said last night before the Flyers played the New York Rangers at the Wachovia Center. "There are some really big men playing these days, and when they get a head of steam, they can do some damage."

Lalime Wants To Play Or A Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Blues coach Mike Kitchen re-enforced Thursday night that Curtis Sanford will get every chance to prove himself as the Blues' No. 1 goalie. That is not sitting well with Patrick Lalime, who has made one start in seven games since being recalled from Peoria. "I don't know what they have in mind for the rest of the year, but if their plan is to play Sandy more, of course, I would like to be traded," Lalime said.
continued update 12:55pm, from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Give Patrick Lalime credit. He hasn’t been much of a goaltender for the Blues this season, but he has a deft comedic touch. His recent trade demand was good for a laugh.

Demolition Man

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Wigge of NHL.com,

I remember standing next to future Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy near the bench area after a Red Wings practice early in the 2001-02 season and listening to Roy speak apathetically -- and yet admiringly -- about Holmstrom. "Look at him," Roy said, watching Holmstrom stand in front of the net trying to deflect shots from Chris Chelios for nearly 15 minutes. "He could be satisfied in being a pain in the *@% the rest of career. But he's trying to do more ... and I'll bet he succeeds, too."

Canadian Culture

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Seven Oaks,

First of all, allow me to get some prosaic notation out of the way. All three books are strong, although Steven Galloway’s Finnie Walsh, and Dave Bidini’s The Best Game You Can Name stand out as significant additions to broader Canadian literature, whereas Our Game, edited by Doug Beardsley, is enjoyable but a little less important to those of us not interested in every hockey related publication. All three books try to explain, either explicitly or implicitly, why hockey is such a powerful symbol for Canadians. One and all, they recognize that its overwhelming popularity grows out of the fact that it is fun, both to play and watch. Not only is the sport itself exciting, but the camaraderie created within teams or fan groups is often personally fulfilling.
